I'm worried my low GPA won't get me into nursing programs - especially being in CA. My cumulative GPA is a 3.3 and science is a 3.0. I'm in the process of finishing up my CNA program and will be licensed by December, just in time to include that on my applications. I've had previous volunteer hours but that was in high school (five years ago). Does anyone have any recommendations on how I can improve my chances of getting into a program? Applying to ADN, BSNs including private schools too. Feeling super discouraged at the moment and worried for my future plans.
